Description

Dive into Salman Rushdies masterpiece, Midnights Children, a work of magical realism that deals with Indias transition from British colonialism to independence.

--

It begins with a countdown. A woman goes into labor as the clock ticks towards midnight. Across India, people wait for the declaration of independence after nearly 200 years of British rule. At the stroke of midnight, an infant and two new nations are born in perfect synchronicity. These events form the foundation of Midnights Children. Iseult Gillespie explores Salman Rushdies dazzling novel.

Lesson by Iseult Gillespie, directed by Toms Pichardo-Espaillat.
